Since I was a child, I’ve held a vision of a perfect world in my heart. Images of animals, flowers, birds, fish and even fruit float among houses in colorful harmony. I guess I’ve not lost touch with my inner child, because while painting these scenes, I’m actively creating a utopian reality with my energy. I also think these images expresses omnipresence – to be in many places at once. It’s a vision of what I think the spirit realm might be like, or perhaps this world viewed from another dimension.

I’ve been spending time on the NASA website, where images of outer space draw me in like a magnet. Space may be vast, but NASA scientists will tell you it is a very crowded and active place, filled with objects of all shapes and sizes and bursting with energy dating back to the Big Bang – and possibly, other life. I envision all of that in my own way with bright colors that lift my own energy and mood. "Celestial Explosion" has a sister painting, "Supernova." Both express the continuous expansion and constant flux of space and energy.
